It’s Coming, Watch For It

Those of you who have been watching both the media and Scottish politics in the last few years will have noticed that particularly, but not only, in the run-up to the referendum, the titles that happen to have both Scottish and English versions tend to print quite different things on both sides of the border.

For the record, so far Corbyn has given the scene in England a massive shake-up and appointed an unelected Lord as Justice Secretary.
